Student Health & Wellness
Each Ritenour school building has a full-time registered nurse that is available to students during school hours. Ritenour's policies require a form to be completed and signed by a parent/guardian and doctor for any medication to be administered to a student at school. A separate form is required for students to self administer emergency medication. See frequently asked questions below to learn more and download forms.
